Pre-Hallowe'en Post

George finds one of these little babies on the dining room table. (They're about 3 cm tall.) He picks it up, he rolls it gingerly this way and that, he eyes it long and carefully. "Mary, is this a spider?" He holds it above his head, peers up at its belly from beneath. "Yes, it is." "Is it a toy, or is it dead?"

'Is it a toy or is it dead?'

always a good question to open with :-)

There would be soooooo much screaming, if something like that was sighted at our house. The princesses don't even like walking past halloween decorations at the malls. Princess number two has a tendency to scream if there are any talking monsters; you know, the ones that they stand by the doors that detect your presence and then make some spooky noise.

Oh, I *so* sympathise with princess 2, Simon! I suffer from coulrophobia (fear of clowns) which extends to masks (I am terrified of people in masks) and also, oddly, stiltwalkers! I have dodged through shops to get away from people on stilts! I also scream loudly if stationery things suddenly move or talk...
